I gotta say, this is looking pretty sweet! The chrome on it is fantastic (the vehicle mode is just...
), and the new robot mode is looking pretty nice! I do have to agree and say it does look more like a Voyager than a Leader. The back kibble isn't bad, just about as much kibble on this one as the ROTF, just handled differently. Hopefully the rest of the Leaders for this line look as good. Leader Grimlock... dang... the thought of it...
Galvatron... please? I still have hopes that he's gunna be in AOE. XD
You are insane. If you think that rotf leader prime had the same amount of kibble. Rotf prime simply had back kibble.. And other than the folded up wheel wells, his back kibble was accurate... This thing however has a ridiculous amount of kibble everywhere.. Huge panels just hanging off.. If you can't see that good for you.. But a lot of us aren't liking the direction hasbro is taking this movie line.

I know there was speculation it might be a voyager....if it IS a leader, its definitely a step backwards, with all the kibble and giant rear axle backpack. I've always been optimistic when it comes to the TF movies, but I'm not sure I like this overall design either (just basing on what we can tell from the figure). Where's the chest windows?? Hope the cgi render is better.
Let me answer that with a quote:
Hasbro.Inc wrote:TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS OPTIMUS PRIME Leader Scale Figure
(Ages: 4 & up /Approx. Retail Price: $44.99/Available: May 2014)
The Leader Scale OPTIMUS PRIME figure from Hasbro is part of the TRANSFORMERS brand’s popular GENERATIONS action figure line and is inspired by the upcoming TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION movie from Paramount Pictures.
He looks decent enough, if he really is Leader-sized I will admit he looks too simple to transform for his size.
What some people unfortunately seem to forget that Leader Class and up have been overly simple the past few years, I mean look at Prime's Weaponizers which were roughly the same size.
I think what you seem to forget is that the weaponizers weren't leader class figures.. They were weaponizers, and their lower price reflected their simplicity.. This is a true leader class figure with the $45 price tag to boot. The last leader figures we got were bumblebee, sentinel, and ironhide.. And I certainly don't remember a simplicity trend with those.
So you see, no one is forgetting anything. This is brand new and it's bad.. Really bad, and if its any indication of how simple the rest of the line is.. It's a major disappointment to those of us who have actually enjoyed the movie designs, and a decent amount of the movie toys.
And lastly.. This is a $45 toy, what parent is going to buy this for their kid? I've never seen a kid in a toy aisle ask their parents for a leader figure let alone their parents say yes. The leader class and human alliance figures should be aimed more towards collectors, because they are the ones with the money to spend..
I fear hasbro has overlooked the size of their collecting market on this one.
